Movement for Bills Addressing EMS Personnel & Bodily Fluids

On Tuesday, the Texas House Urban Affairs Committee will consider HB 2770 (Rep. Mando Martinez, D-Weslaco), which would give EMS personnel access to timely information regarding bodily fluids that they may encounter during the scope of their work.

SB 1574, the Senate companion bill (Senator Carlos Uresti, D-San Antonio), was heard in a Senate committee last week.  TEMSA is working with both bill authors on the legislation.
